Infectious Diseases in Plants

Organisms that cause infectious diseases in plants include fungi, oomycetes, bacteria, viruses,viroids, virus-like organisms, phytoplasmas, spiroplasms, protozoa, nematodes and parasitic plants. Common pathogenic infection methods are cell wall degrading enzymes, toxins, effector proteins. Control of plant diseases is crucial to the reliable production of food, and it provides significant reductions in agricultural use of land, water, fuel and other inputs.  New methods are needed to detect diseases and pests early, such as novel sensors that detect plant odours and spectroscopy and biophotonics that are able to diagnostic plant health and metabolism.
